      Good but missing features

      I have used lightshot on Windows for years and loved how easy it was to quickly take a screenshot of something and get it posted in a Discord chat. I was happy to see they also had it on Windows but there are quite a few features that are missing in the Windows version. The biggest missing feature is you can’t change the location that it saves the screenshots too. You also can’t set it to auto copy the image link to your clip board, save the screenshot size, or login to your ligthshot account so all your screenshots get saved to your account. Thankfuly, it does still have all the image editing features so if you are looking for something to just simply take a screenshot and upload a link to a chat quickly then this works great.

      Useful Tool, but Needs Patches

      I've been using lightshot on windows for a couple years now and have loved it. Wouldn't go without it. After installing it on my M1 Windows, I found that the features are pretty much all there and despite feeling a little clunky compared to the windows version, it got the job done. The only issue I'm seeing currently is that no matter what I've selected to be captured, uploading the screenshot to the cloud and copying the link results in just an image of the lightshot logo. The actual capture doesn't seem to be there. To be clear, the link loads just fine, it's just that the only thing in the loaded image is the lightshot logo. Pretty strange. Definitely recommend this for anyone needing a quick snipping tool with markup support though. Surprised to read all the reviews from people saying they couldn't figure out how to open it... you need to explicitly allow it permissions on Windows OS to capture your screen, and it needs to be running with the capture keys configured (I set mine to Command Shift 9, but I don't recall the default) in order to have it capture. Will adjust to 5 stars once the upload feature is repaired, keep up the great work!

      Was Great... now constant failures and slowness

      I've been using this for years without issues. It's been wonderful... Until several months ago it just started failing to upload about 50% of the time and loading screenshots from links is incredibly slow. I've tried removing the app and reinstalling. I also cleared my entire gallery hoping that maybe had something to do with it... to no success. I don't know what changed that made these inconsistencies but please change it back. It was wonderful the way it was before.


      The best software for screenshot but I wish it was updated.

      This software remains to be the best in 2021, but unfortunately the software is not optimized for last 2 verisions of PC. It works very slow, and incorrectly. After writing text it is not possible click copy or anything else, because cursor is missing the buttons. And it became extremely slow even on very powerful machines. I wish the developers hears us and improves it and remains the best one for many years to go. My friend - developer, its your name on it, please fix it.

      My only request for the developers...

      Allow users to adjust the size of markups. Why is it when I try to highlight something by putting a box around it it randomly goes from thin to wide? So wide that it completely conceals what i am trying to highlight. Otherwise, for a quick and easy way to take a screenshot of an entire screen or any sized window and mark it up in real time is fantastic.
